Mindstrong Health Firm Receives $ 14 Million Fund for its New Series-A

Mindstrong Health is a startup firm that renders neuropsychiatric diagnosis and treatment through the utility of smartphones. In June 2017, the firm was delighted to announce that it had secured a $14 million-dollar worth of fund from business entities that included; ARCH Adventure Associates, Optum Ventures, One Mind Brain Health Impact Company and Foresite Capital.

The firm devised a stage that enabled the diagnosis of mental disorders through tracking patients’ patterns of typing and scrolling on a smartphone, which projects the cognitive functions of an individual. The technology offers information regarding sensitive dispositions and cognitive biomarkers. These are often depicted from elements like speed, function, and memory.

The platform has provided a revolutionary means of treating mental disorders, and according to the CEO and founder of Mindstrong Health, Paul Dagum, every contemporary healthcare bases its facts on objective measurement, yet provisions of mental care have been limited to clinical analyses in a medical setting. He also exclaimed,” For better mental care treatment procedures, it is crucial to devise other objective measures of alleviating chronic conditions such as diabetes and cardiovascular disorders. Mindstrong provides continuous, goal-oriented measures of character and cognitive functions with an insightful and resolution level that was previously inaccessible.”

Mr. Jim Tananbaum, CEO, and MD of Foresite Capital applauded the Mindstrong Health founders for the remarkable digital health care platform. “Mindstrong brings a unique and expansive understanding of the drawbacks that derail the dispensation of mental care,” he said.
